Commercial Description

The flavor of the Pilsner Urquell begins with the intense taste of the Saaz hops, which blends with the malty sweetness of the barley to produce a harmonious bitterness and creamy body.

    12 oz BROWN bottle Pilsner glass Best by Sept 19 2015 First time trying this since the bottling change
    A: Deep almost orange gold pour with ample lacing from a light beige head. Good retention.
    S: Malty almost smoky aroma. Faint European hop scent.
    T: Malty upfront as in the nose. Baguette and grain dominate with a mild hop flavor that again I can best describe as "smoky". Earthy is probably the better word. Very good!
    M: Has a bit of weight for the strength of the brew. average to slightly below on carbonation but feels sprightly on the tongue. Slightly oily finish.
    O: The old standby is in good form. This beer is still most excellent in its class. It has only improved in recent months. Still a favorite!

    Crisp and light with a great hoppy taste and smell, this beer definately sets the standard for what a pilsner should be. I can definitely see how this one beer changed the world of beer leading all the way to Budweiser's control of the world beer market.

    Appearance: Pours crystal clear and golden and forms a nice head that dissipated quickly with no appreciable lacing.
    Aroma: Herbals hops and fresh cut hay.
    Taste: Hops and malt balance well, but provide no character. Strong metallic taste dominates.
    Texture: Light body plenty of carbonation.
    Drinkability: I had a hard time finding a reason to buy another bottle so I probably won't.
    Notes: Served in a Pilsener Glass

    This is the beer that sets the standard for Czech Pilsner. It is unfortunate that it comes in a green bottle that can "skunk" the beer. But it has the excellent bittering quality and crispness that makes Czech Pils stand out

    The pils of all pilsners, truly a classic. Very well balanced...mild malt with a good hop aroma and flavor credit to the Saaz. One of my all time favorites.
